You can also try fetching safenetworkprimer2 because I think the iOS release was built from the master branch.

Landscape mode looking nice!

Ps I’m looking forward to the dark mode that’s being teased in the settings.

:slightly_smiling_face: Yes, we already have half baked code for that and we will be finishing that before next major release.

I seem to be able to get the browser to crash pretty consistently when going from portrait to landscape repeatedly while a website is loading.

I’ll test this, is it crashing if the website is loaded completely and then you change device orientation?

No only seems to be while loading but I’ll mess around more and let you know any specific behavior.

Edit: It might only be certain sites? I got it to crash consistently the first couple visits by going crazy with landscape and portrait when loading the defunct jams.demo site and safe://racer.game/v2.curves.html but can’t seem to replicate it now.

Just want to also compliment on the share feature. Not only can you copy a url link to your clipboard, send through mail, add to notes, but you can also AirDrop to another iOS user. Even better though is when they receive the link it says it requires an app from the App Store. I’ve always thought that a way to share a link and the browser in one go and then once installed the browser resolves to that link, would be such a wonderful thing.

Hey @Nigel, It wouldn’t show you that alert from the next release instead it will just open the website in the SAFE mobile browser and here is the merged PR which enables this feature.

Cool, nice update :slightly_smiling_face: it’s so nice to browse safe on my new tablet.

Feeling better recently and able to get to these.

Not sure what this app store is but it’s very cool to see a MaidSafe App listed on an app store. It’s the little steps along the way that need to be celebrated, to keep everyone going the strongest they can :+1: and this is one of them.

Also, mobile browser is arguably the most important app that we can make, but I thought that went without saying :wink:

Brilliant!!!

SAFENetwork primer mobile version is Awsome on this new version release.
Thanks for the update!

Edit: Having these mobile browsers on phone make the SAFENetwork feel that much more real. I’m sitting here browsing safe://

Mind blowing.

So… Typing in a non existent website give an error.

Typing in a non existent website with numerical looks like it directs to an ip address!!!

Try safe://2020

Hey @Zoki, thanks for finding this issue.

It seems like it’s converting the number into an IP address. I have created an issue on GitHub so we can track and resolve this.

Thank you!

I was trying to remember and see if the safe://2048 game was still available on the test net.
